Wondering where to start off with, with the present or the past or in between somewhere in the flashbacks that tells the exploits of a man who preyed on women for their abode and never found himself giving up on it until……
Well, you would have to watch the movie for that why give it all away.
Hunterrr is one of the movies that probably every boy, man fantasizes in the land of Kamasutra but seldom is our society open to talk about sex.
It’s good to see movies bringing sex out in the open than behind closed doors.
The movie revolves around Mandar Ponkshe (Gulshan Devaiah) and his sex life wherein he is more interested in getting laid than to find a true love and settled down in life.
His exploits are the highlight of the movie as flashes of his life from the present and past is shown along with women with whom he has affairs.
As he starts ageing and the societal pressure starts to build up on him, he begins his search for his bride through the arrange marriage route and yes the dilemma of speaking the truth about his past hangs like sword over his neck.
He meets Trupti (Radhika Apte) the one girl whom he could have opened about his past but lies. If wondering why, it’s because she had a past too.
Her ex-boyfriend haunts him like anything making him think if he should tell her the truth or not. His past addiction is on the verge of breaking his start off on a clean slate.
The movie starts well with witty dialogues and then later the flashbacks happen between the present and past. One starts wondering if the director wanted us to compare Mandar’s past and present. I am not sure how many people have got that.
It also tells the story about his cousin Kshitij (Vaibhav Tatwawdi ) who due to his mischiefs is put in army school and yes he too woos the gals his way with his army uniform. Then it takes a turn where he beats up a father for raping his daughter and then ends up marrying her who also is shown to have a darker complexion. Something that makes you think.
Mandar never gets why he does that even when Kshitij could have good looking one’s for marriage.
It’s the climax of the movie that leaves you down wanting for more. The scene especially when he tells her the truth and her response could have been better written. It leaves you wondering “bas itna hi aur kuch nahi”
The only scene that I did not like is the way kids are shown to brush against women in open place. I don’t think that is something that was needed to be shown but my guess is that they probably wanted to show the reality.
The movie is worth watching especially for Gulshan showing his acting prowess and well supported by the rest of the cast. Another one to watch out for is Vaibhav Tatwawdi. Nitesh Pandey does his bit in a blink and miss scene.
The movie does give a feel of a Marathi movie. It has been well directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni who also happens to be the writer.
The men are going to enjoy this movie a lot more than women. If you are women and liked the movie please do share your thoughts.
The movie is a must watch for Gulshan Devaiah’s acting.
